Sabrina Shah - Talk to me
Sabrina Shah’s paintings, with their bold, multi-layered paint application and varied textures, explore the territory of ideas and invention, where the absolutely new occurs. The textured surfaces allow for slippages and tension between form and meaning.
Referencing childhood memories, animated characters and make believe, her not-quite-human, not-quite-animal characters, at once familiar yet distant, personify feelings of being othered or out of place. Often incorporating elements of suspense and surprise in her narratives, Shah also references food cultures and her British, Chinese and South Asian heritage.
